The masterpiece of power and performance, the Sea Fury T20 fighter trainer has returned to the skies. In the year of the carrier The Sea Fury T20 celebrated the naming of the Prince of Wales Aircraft Carrier with a flypast in Rosyth, flown by Lt Cdr Chris Gotke who was awarded the Air Force Cross by the Prince of Wales, after skilfully landing the Sea Fury T20 at RNAS Culdrose Air Day in 2014 after an engine failure.
The aircraft is loaned to the Royal Navy Historic Flight by the Fly Navy Heritage Trust and is displayed by the Historic Flight under an agreement between the Trust and the Royal Navy. After the landing at RNAS Culdrose, the Trust launched a £200,000 appeal to buy a new Centaurus 18 engine. The charity relies on public donations and we thank all our supporters and well wishers who helped raise funds for the rebuild and her return to the skies.
Navy Wings is holding a special Sea Fury heritage event at RNAS Yeovilton on 22nd September 2017. Click here for more information.
